Origin of the Cattle: the Scientific Basis

This was one of my research subject on which I hoped to do study for a long time.
Before industrialization began, Asian people had lived for a long time, while firmly rooting into agriculture-based society. Based upon it, many great ancient civilizations flourished. In fact, there are many components needed for building such an agricultural society. Agrarians need different species of crops and domesticated animals. And those "components" have different origins in history. Before worldwide spread, some were cultivated first in Mesopotamia while the other were domesticated for the first time in China. Using the components as building blocks, each agricultural society could be formed, survived and flourished. However, as for the exact origin and spread of such components in history, there are too many thing to be revealed, especially by scientific research techniques.
